2022 looks like a big year for fashion lovers already, and there are lots of exciting developments on the horizon that have had people talking.
While it’s not clear whether some of those trends will stabilize more permanently or if some of them are just temporary, there has certainly been enough attention in those directions from many fashion enthusiasts, and we fully expect that this will remain the case for at least the next couple of seasons.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the hottest options available to those who want to spice things up through the year.
Bright & Bold Is Back in Style
After a prolonged period of pastel colors dominating the scene, we’re finally seeing a shift back towards brighter and bolder styles, with various vibrant colors gaining popularity fast. This is particularly prominent in women’s clothing, although men also have plenty of similar options to pick from.
Brighter colors like yellow, lime, and green, are being actively used by many, and in various different combinations. This doesn’t seem to be a seasonal trend either – there are lots of indicators that this is going to continue in full force over the next months.
If you enjoy a bit of extra fuzziness in your clothing, that’s another reason to love what 2022 has in store for you. From scarves to hats, more and more people are switching to clothes with a bit more fleece. Some designers have even been experimenting with the idea in other contexts, such as accessories like handbags, though this is not a very prominent theme.
Some people don’t enjoy the idea of fuzzy accessories that much in the first place, and it’s a very individual thing, so it’s a good idea to check how this might work with your own style before committing to any expensive accessories. There’s certainly no shortage of options for spending your money on some nice-looking goodies in this category, so you should be careful.
High-End Trends for Men
Women were traditionally targeted by high-end fashion much more actively than men, but this has been changing in recent years, and it’s shaping up to be a strong trend in 2022. Those who frequently shop from the Balmain range have been noticing a better variety of models recently, with various new designs cropping up that have been offering men more interesting and extravagant options for their appearance.
SSENSE has proven to be a great partner for those interested in expanding their wardrobes in a similar manner, offering a wide range of options as well as the Balmain range. And interestingly enough, their products tend to be much more affordable on average, something which is a relatively new trend in this corner of the market.
And for something a bit more random, vests have been climbing back up in popularity very fast, much to the surprise of some fashion lovers. It’s not hard to see why they’re suddenly enjoying so much attention though, as they can work great with some of the recently popular trends on the market, especially with regards to colors and contrasting shapes.
Some suspect that this trend might not last long, but it won’t take more than a few months to see where that ends up. If you’ve got some interesting vests in your wardrobe and you’ve wanted to brush them off for a while though, now is the perfect time for that. Don’t hold off for too long, because you never know if that trend will still be around tomorrow.
Is Denim Coming Back?
Speaking of things making an exciting comeback, denim has also been on some people’s radars for some time at this point. It’s a classic universal choice that’s beloved by many, but recent years have provided an even better opportunity for blending it with other popular designs.
Denim is a pretty individual thing, and some people like wearing it much more than others – and it certainly doesn’t automatically fit every style. But if you’ve got the opportunity to add some denim flair to your current style, that’s definitely something you should consider.
It doesn’t have to be anything too extravagant, as denim can easily produce great results with very subtle use. And if you don’t have any prior experience with wearing denim as part of your ordinary clothing, you should definitely play around with this in a subtler manner first before going farther.
As we said earlier, these trends may or may not stabilize through the year, but they’re all definitely things every avid fashion fan should be keeping an eye on for the time being.
There’s a lot to explore in the world of fashion right now, especially if you like to tweak your appearance in more interesting ways, so take a look around and see what might grab your attention – you never know when you might discover something that will make you want to completely throw out your style and start from scratch!
